What a unique property! This boathouse is where the US Navy would dock crash boats during World War II and the crews would sleep inside. This was built in 1943. It is located on two acres in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. Beautiful views! Could live in the boathouse while you build something on the land. Looks like a private location. One bedroom, one bathroom, and 854 square feet. $315,000
